Could you refer a Friend by hosting a Star Party?

You will have read about our £500 referral scheme for carers who recommend a successful applicant to us in our last newsletter. In support of this revised referral scheme, we are also launching a new way for carers to put forwards potential applicants in the form of ‘Star Parties’.

Star parties are simple to organise and will give you an opportunity to work with us to host coffee mornings in order to help find new applicants for the 500 vulnerable children we have in our care. A Star Party is basically the equivalent of a charity coffee morning that you will organise and hold at your home. All expenses will of course be reimbursed.

Once you have invited 3-5 friends, family members, or people from your local community (who you feel could be a great contribution to our team) then please get in touch and we can help you set up your Star Party.  A member of the recruitment team will then set up an informal information session for the group and come along to answer any burning questions! The £500 referral payment will then be made to you when a recommended applicant has been approved by the fostering panel and has taken on their first short term placement.

If you’d like to hear more then please speak with Shannon via email at  stweed@buckscc.gov.uk for details on how to get started.
